Like amateur magicians, childhood toys are full of old gimmicks and appear to wince when sawn in half. Enlist a dependable new plaything instead with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of educational toys at Learning Express Toys in Ridgeland.
At Learning Express Toys, children tickle their brains and funny bones with educational toys from brands such as Lego and Scientific Explorer, as well as apparel, jewelry, party favors, and cards. Seven days a week, staff members spread their infectious joy as they help children and joy-immune parents decide on playthings such as the LCD Writing Boogie Board ($39.99) or the brain-stimulating Bananagrams word game ($14.99). Children's apparel bedecks young fashionistas in fun threads, outfitting domes with Angry Birds–themed hats during the winter months ($19.99). The store frequently holds special events for festive occasions, such as Father's Day and Lego Day, hosting such costumed characters as Santa Claus and welcoming royal delegates from the King of Legoland.
